I wasnt expecting Stiff Little Fingers as the canned music between Killer Mike and El-P. That seemed a little random.

What's the best record or compilation or whatever to listen to if you're new to Erik Satie? I know GI is into him, and I imagine other here are as well. I don't think I've ever heard anything by him.

It might be a little eccentric, but by far my favorite Satie is Reinbert de Leeuw's recording of his Early Piano Works.

Anne the Man still has my disc of Satie. It's not an especially good one, just the Naxos release. However, God bless Naxos for their affordable and high quality classical music releases.

Naxos does a tremendous public service. Aside from the aforementioned discount pricing of quality recordings, they showcase an amazing variety of relatively unknown (to the recording world anyway) orchestras, composers and performers. Also I could sit here and list about two dozen instances where a Naxos recording of a particular work outclasses a Sony, EMI or DG recording of the same piece by a "name" orchestra/conductor.

Anyway there are hell of Naxos recordings of Satie piano stuff, and I'm sure a lot of it is on Spotify, so look around there!

Hint, hint, Anne the Man!  Smile

So I gather there's no particularly special set of songs of Satie's that stand above others. And I'm guessing that to someone like me, who doesn't listen to much classical music, the particular recording or musician isn't going to matter much. I'll just grab whatever comes up first on a Soulseek search, probably some collection of his early works since Coldforge likes those best.

Oh, no, there's clearly classic Satie (the Gymnopédies, the Gnossiemes) it's just that if there is a stand-out recording of his work, I don't what it is it, and I certainly don't own it. Anyway, his pieces are as a rule very short, and a single CD can contain almost everything of note he ever wrote.

Sounds like a GI-curated mixtape to me.  Cool

was going to read only, but this is something i can get down on. i REALLY like the 1971 Piano Works with pianist Daniel Varsano. much of this blew my mind the first time i heard it, and i was literally just playing the thing on repeat for 3 days.

Yeah RL I can't name any recommendations off the top of my head, so listen to these other fine folks who've chimed in. Me, I think I was always more fascinated by Satie the eccentric humorist than Satie the composer.

Guess who's at his wife's office, sifting through the free pile of promotional junk? And guess who found a DVD of Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone (Festival Cut) laying there unclaimed? And guess who claimed it for Yojimbo?

Yep.

de Leeuw! I told you, people! That's the standout recording of Satie's early piano works!

The de Leeuw recording is was popped up on Soulseek when I searched for "Erik Satie Early," so that's what I'm going with for now. Just started listening to it this minute.

I'm philiptraum. The only other LPTJ person I know there is das kranke Tier, and that's because he has the same name. We should start a group! I've never started one before, but I'll try.

edit: There's an LPTJ group now. It's name is LPTJ. You've got to refresh the room list to see it.

last night's dj set :

butthole surfers- hey
monochrome set- flesh, trash, heat
human eye- we are the peopleoids
rolling stones- she's in rainbows
bruce- hungry heart

one of the best sets i've played and hardly anyone was there because there were two shows happening at adjacent bars and the toilet in the bar we were in exploded halfway through my set and everything smelled like shit. still had a great time.
